Levels of Biological Organization
The Students will explore the levels of biological organization in living things.
Atom: the smallest unit of an element (Atomical particles) each element has its own type of atoms.
Molecule: Atoms bonded together
Cellular Organelle: A well-defined structure within a cell.
Cell: the basic organizational unit of living material.

Ecosystem: Formed by the community and the physical features of its environment like climate, water, rocks, dirt, etc.
Biosphere: The biosphere is made up of the parts of Earth where life exists.

Time to Elaborate
There will be 12 pairs of students. Each pair will be assigned one level of organization. Each pair will have to make a drawing of an example of that level of organization.
You will be given a piece of paper where you will have to create a poster of the level of organization assigned to you. You will include: The title will be the level of organization A drawing of that level of organization The definition of it Names of the students.
A collection of tissues that structurally form a functional unit specialized to perform a particular function.
